About this Item

New York: Scribners, 1947. Quarto, cloth (lacks dust wrapper). 308 pages, indexed and illustrated. Map endleaves. A very good copy of the First Edition. "Assembled by his son from the family collection and supplementary sources, this album reproduces in chronological sequence 393 splendid photographs, sketches, and paintings of the Frontier West by an artist whose long life span (1843-1942) paralled the white man's conquest of the region. The views of railroad building, mining towns, Indians, pueblos, the wonders of the Yellowstone and Yosemite Valleys, mountains, including the Grand Teton.are taken with an artist's eye for composition.Based largely upon Jackson's early diaries, a running commentary accompanies the pictures, and treats mainly of his expeditions of 1870-78 as a staff member of the Hayden Geological and Geographical Survey." (Mugridge, Donald H. and Blanche P. McCrum. "A Guide to the Study of the United States of America"). Bookseller Inventory # 9491
